    What a horrendous situation for that filly. And, no, I do not condone anything about that kind of obfuscation. I also got hold of horses who looked far worse when I received them than they had on the...

    You know, some of the rescues are just better at keeping the **bad** stuff quiet. There are those that look respectable, but have their own skeletons, and no one casts any stones because they 1. know...

    I am certainly not ignoring any facts, as I know them. I do not know specific facts about anything you are setting forth. What I do know is exactly what my interactions were with AC4H, and what came...

    I picked up horses at AC4H twice, possibly three times, and if memory serves, they may have been different places. I didn't offer much detail, because frankly, I was focused on what I was doing-...

    Once again, at this point, I am not going to go in search of the facts. I realize that there are issues. I am more than capable of reviewing 990's; I did take the time to do it for one currently...

    I have not reviewed their 990's. I am not naïve enough to believe that everything was pristine, but that isn't my point here.

    I am still thankful for the horses I was able to help, because...

    Read for comprehension- I stated that I feel horrible for those horses who **had no one to advocate for them**. By your example, standing back, and letting them all go is just fine and dandy. I do...

    I was the co-founder of a 501.c.3 for American Saddlebreds. I also sat on the board. We had a board member who, in my opinion only, is a freaking whacko. Unfortunately, she also was the treasurer....

    Kelly ran her own rescue in Maryland, then she and Christy had a falling out. Frankly, it is not unusual for rescues **competing** against one another to end up at odds. I worked with, or rather...

    I didn't look at the ad, but I would simply say that any sensitive horse would fall into that category, right? Or something green, whatever. It would be irresponsible to advertise any other way.

    The toughest issue with the breed is that they want so much to please, that once you teach them something, they'll try and give it to you 110% of the time. So, if you go to a show barn, where the...
